The UK is committed to ensuring that any refugee returns to Syria take place voluntarily and in line with international law.

While the conflict is ongoing, we are focused on providing life-saving and life-changing support for millions of people across Syria. We remain the second largest bilateral donor to the humanitarian response in Syria since 2011 and have now committed £2.71 billion to the Syria Crisis to date.</p>
